A lesson in Listening...
My work space is such a mess...again. I keep telling myself to clean it up but I get sidetracked or busy or I think I will do it later, blah , blah, blah. I remember thinking just last week that when the kids start school I will clean my office.
The kids started school today and I went into my office to get to work and my chair hit the table and I knocked my clay/supply/cubby right on its head.
CRASH!!!!! 15million little jewels and brassy bits and clay cane designs all went flying. This is a small section of the mess. It went into the hallway and the kitchen as well. Think fireworks. Boom!
I just stood there for a good 5 minutes wondering where to start and getting kind of glassy eyed at the whole mess. Then I thought, oh, I should have listened. I kept telling myself to clean up and get organized but I just kept putting it off. It really is not 15 million pieces but it might as well be. Now I have no one to blame but myself. Should have cleaned it up weeks ago and I probably would not be sorting through every last little do da on the floor. Oh , well. Lesson learned and now I know exactly what I have. Or at least I will know when I am done picking through the big pile of stuff. What a mess. Life Lesson # 4789- clean your room.
